Natural Date 556
One thing I learned from walking the Nevada desert wilderness with Grey Wolf is that slinking through the wild is no way to promote a cause and certainly no way to raise awareness of anything among the general public.
The maps below show my prior path walking through Maine (before my detour to the Nevada desert) beginning at Bar Harbor. My plan now is to reroute from Bucksport. I also plan to put a sign on Max (my van) so people will know why there’s a strange white van parked at the side of the road and a lady walking as though she’s had some sort of breakdown.
You may be wondering why I didn’t put signs on my van in the first place. Hey, I’m an introvert. I typically try to get away with as little fanfare as possible. Lessons learned. Enough said.
This is not the sort of walk across America where the goal is not necessarily to arrive from point A to point B. It’s a new lifetyle, for now, where walking allows time and space to meet the ground and the sky, and the people who dwell in between; and through the process, introduce America to Natural Law.
